"Spring: a lovely reminder of how beautiful change can truly be."  -  unknown

Spring seems to always be a mixed bag of weather.  Our weather has certainly run the whole gambit the last couple of weeks with rain and snow.  The only thing we can count on is that the weather is always changing.   

Last week under cloudy skies, a friend and I went where we knew we wouldn't get rained on...Franklin Park Conservatory.  (find out more HERE)  It was the last week of their yearly orchid show.  The show was beautiful.  

One of my favorite ways to take pictures is to use my 60mm macro lens and get as close as I can to my subject.  Here is a picture of me in 'action'.  :)   

Due to traffic and a stop to get our camera sensors cleaned, we didn't have as long as we would have liked to photograph the orchids.  But it was long enough to get a few good shots and recharge our spirits.  It is amazing how a couple of hours doing what you love and loosing track of time can feel like a little vacation.  

When was the last time you 'lost track of time'?  And what were you doing?  I would love to hear about it. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great day!

Everyday Beauty

"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it."  -  Confucius

Sometimes I look too hard to find things to photograph and end up overlooking beauty that is right under my nose.  This week I looked a little closer...

The Last of the Fall Colors

"Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go."  -  unknown

I kept looking out the window as I was washing the breakfast dishes.  I wanted to get outside.
